An Introduction

(p.1) Chapter One Identity and Ideology
Translingual Narration

Bert Mittchell Scruggs

University of Hawai'i Press

Chapter one introduces the ideological significance of personal identity in colonial Taiwanese fiction. It also discusses briefly the problem of a postcolonial subject with Marxism, psychoanalysis, structural linguistics, discourse analysis, and feminism. The relationship between literature, identity, and translation is also introduced. Finally some of the historical and linguistic contingencies of colonial Taiwanese are described: disparities between official historical discourse set in place with schools and other repressive apparatus and the lived reality of the Taiwanese under Japanese colonialism, and the influence of Nationalist Chinese Martial Law on current understandings of colonial Taiwan.

Keywords:   identity politics, ideology, Taiwan, Japan, China, colonialism, fiction, Martial Law
